I am officially and publicly declaring that I was mistaken, and am shifting my position.
Not about porn in general. But about one particular brand of porn.
Specifically, the “Girls Gone Wild” videos.
And the way I’m changing my mind is illustrating one of the most important points I’ve been making about it.

(And if you feel inspired to comment here, please consider cross-posting your comment to the Blowfish Blog — they like comments there, too.) Enjoy!
